LET'S TALK FISHING: CONNECTICUT TROPHY TROUT, APRIL 1; WALLEYE FISHING, APRIL 2

CONCORD, N.H. -- Evening fishing talks by angling experts continue at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department with a repeat engagement of "Fly Fishing New Hampshire's Upper Connecticut River for Trophy Trout" on Wednesday, April 1 (back by popular demand!); and a new session, "Walleye Fishing 101" featuring Fisheries Biologist Gabe Gries on Thursday, April 2. The talks start at 7 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord, N.H. Admission is free. 

In "Walleye Fishing 101" on Thursday, April 2, you'll learn year-round techniques for catching open-water walleye in New Hampshire from Fisheries Biologist Gabe Gries, who is N.H. Fish and Game's Warmwater Project Leader. Gries has successfully pursued fish in New Hampshire for the past 30 years, and walleye are one of his absolute passions. Gries will provide tackle and lure suggestions for catching walleye, plus insights on selecting where to fish. He is eager to share his knowledge of fishing techniques, life history and management of a fish highly prized by anglers -- the walleye. 

"Walleye in New Hampshire are an untapped and underutilized resource," says Gries. "They are one of the most intriguing and best-eating fish we have, but most New Englanders have never caught one, despite the fantastic fishery that exists for them in the Connecticut River. Walleye may be a tough fish to figure out, but this presentation will give you the tools to start catching them."

Earlier in the week, on Wednesday, April 1, Fish and Game has squeezed in a repeat of the popular talk by registered New Hampshire fishing guide Angus Boezeman, "Fly Fishing New Hampshire's Upper Connecticut River for Trophy Trout." This talk kicked off the fishing series; following an overwhelming response, another session was scheduled. Widely known as the guru of the Connecticut River, Boezeman has more than 30 years of experience fishing the river. At the talk, he shares time-tested techniques for angling this famous and sometimes intimidating fishery, including selecting the correct fly for any river condition and the importance of properly reading the water for the most likely fish haunts. If you missed Boezeman's talk last week, be sure to get to this one!

"I find it amazing that there are so many people who love to fish, but have not given this world-class fishery a try," says Boezeman. "It is important to have a game plan for fishing the Connecticut, but this program will give you the confidence to give it a try."

Meanwhile, don't forget this week's talk, Wednesday, March 25, at 7 p.m. at Fish and Game headquarters -- "Downriggers and Trolling." New Hampshire fishing guides Jason Parent and Travis Williams will help you catch salmon on the big lakes all season long!
